Give Aloha

GiveAloha-Logo1From September 1 – 30,  visit your favorite Foodland store and make a donation at the check-out to Damien (#77030) using your Maika’i Card.  Thanks to Foodland and the Western Union Foundation, each donation up to $249 per person will be matched.  You can find more information about the Give Aloha program here

When you’re putting together your Foodland grocery list, “lettuce” say we think you’re “soup-er” when you give to Damien at the check-out, especially during these “dates” when dollars will “meat” another dollar with the “match”.  After “All”, everyone knows Damien supporters are the top “banana”!
